Description

P:resented By: DRI and S-E-A

Soil and soil-related issues are impactful in an astonishing number of construction claims/lawsuits.  Are construction delays costing your client money?  Is soil a factor? If your client has a construction related claim and is a general contractor, grading contractor, structural engineer, architect, civil designer, inspection company: soil may be related to the claim.  Were the soils considered properly during design? It is a tangled web woven on a construction site given the interaction between prime and subcontractors, inspection duties, duty to protect, control of the site, duty of design professionals, etc.

Who Should Attend: 

  • Attorneys
  • Adjusters
  • Construction industry professionals that handle construction-related claims

What Will You Learn?:

  • Soils-related issues impact a surprising percentage of construction cost-related issues, understand how to determine if your case is one those issues.
  • Remember to consider dirt in your analysis, take away a better understanding of the relationships between soils and the parties in the project.
  • Better understand soil-related issues and learn how to better indicate or exonerate the different parties in you case.
  • Have a better understanding on when to consult with a geotechnical engineer with construction experience regarding your case.
